In Vavilov v. Canada (Citizenship and Immigration Canada), the Federal Court certified two questions of general importance. When it is published the Federal Court of Appeal decision will be posted here. The questions are:
Are the words “other representative or employee of a foreign government in Canada” found in paragraph 3(2)(a) of the Citizenship Act limited to foreign nationals who benefit from diplomatic privileges and immunities?
What is the standard of review applicable to the determination of whether Mr. Vavilov is not a Canadian citizen by reason of the application of paragraph 3(2)(a) of the Citizenship Act?
